Tune In

This collection of songs spans several genres and decades, but each of them plays an important role in the life and relationship of Barrett and Jane. The playlist features everything from an achingly beautiful classical piece by Brahms that was played at Jane’s funeral, to the sweetly romantic pop songs that punctuate the couple’s relationship. You can listen to the playlist here directly, or through Spotify. And to learn more about each song and its significance, check out the In Sickness Book Guide
